Tennis Prediction of the Day Karen Khachanov vs Dennis Novak
Karen Khachanov is a very talented athlete, with mixed results lately. But here they play their last chance to get out of the groups, already losing the first match in a minimum of sets. Obviously, the opponent was superior, Agut being in top form, but Karen played quite modestly on the return, now needing an evolution. Dennis Novak was also modest in the first game, although he kept close to Berrettini.
But Novak served rather poorly, which was actually a problem for him in the Austrian Championship, when he had problems with much weaker athletes.
Bet Tips: Karen Khachanov over 11.5 games won
